Here is a Mission trip opportunity to North Katanga, Democratic Republic of the Congo for February 12-22, 2014. Are you being called to serve and share the love of Jesus Christ with others? A team is being assembled to serve Kamina Children's Home. Once in the DRC, you will fly on the Wings of the Morning Cessna with Pilot Gaston into Kamina where you will spend time interacting and having fun with orphaned children and teens living at the Kamina Children’s Home, work alongside the youth in painting their bedrooms, and worship with them in their United Methodist Church. Time will also be available to interact with and encourage the orphanage staff. Contact NancyGrandstaff @ 614-562-6234 or email at gobridge(at)mac.com.

The Pillowcase ladies gathered first in the summer of 2010 to make pillowcases for Deshler's Community Vacation Bible School. 85 pillowcases were made on which the children created messages of hope which were then given to Hospice of Northwest Ohio in Napoleon.
Now the Pillowcase Ladies gather on a monthly basis at New Beginnings UMC for fellowship and to create projects for the local nursing home. All ladies from the church, parish and community are welcome.
